Tang Studies is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary publication of the T'ang Studies Society. The journal is open to critical inquiry into all topics related to Tang China, but particularly encourages scholarship that is directly engaged with primary sources from the Sui, Tang, and Five Dynasties periods. Major disciplines regularly represented in the journal include literature, linguistics, history, religious studies, and art history. The journal welcomes submissions of original research, annotated translations, and reference notes, as well as bibliographic materials.
The journal is currently undergoing a transition in publishers to Johns Hopkins University Press. Volume 39 will be the first issue with JHUP and is scheduled to be mailed in November 2021. The electronic version of the journal and back issues are available to current members on Project MUSE: Tang Studies. The mailing of the final issue by Taylor & Francis, volume 38 (2020), has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
